Wow! I was not expecting 35 different ideas but now I can do something personalized for all the groomsmen and make things individualized and unique


Everyone loves a personalized gift! Thank you for reading!


Would the personalization on these items put it over the $20 mark or is that included in the cost of them item? Great suggestions by the way


The personalization should be included - you can click the links to see the prices in more detail. Thank you 🙂


I'm really glad that not all of these gifts revolve around alcohol. I feel like that most groomsemen gift lists revolve around and that's just not what I want to do.


Thank you for reading 🙂
